Needs Statement
Contributions to USF Sarasota-Manatee impact the Sarasota-Manatee community residents; local gifts support local programs and needs.

The fundraising goals for 2015-2020 can be sorted by three priority areas:

  • Student Success
  • Breakthrough Research
  • Community Engagement

Three funding initiatives support the 2015-2020 priority areas, and they are:

Student Scholarships - Scholarships support students by offsetting costs of tuition, books, fees, housing, meals, etc. This type of support connects specifically to student success.


USF Sarasota-Manatee Science and Research Building - The structure is estimated to cost $36 million and comprises 75,000 square feet of teaching, learning and collaborative space designed to support creative solutions to both local and global issues. This type of support is particularly suited for breakthrough research.

NCAA Women’s Rowing - USFSM’s Rowing Team competes at the level of an NCAA varsity program and is training accordingly through a partnership with top ranked Sarasota Crew. The future of this program relies heavily upon private funds. This specific funding need furthers community engagement.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
We provide leadership in the creation and acceptance process for this budget. Programming leadership comes from a large Community Leadership Council which is represented by a diverse group of individuals with a broad representation of professional backgrounds and expertise. Each of the four Colleges at USF Sarasota-Manatee charges separate advisory councils to help inform course offerings that mirror the changing needs of the community. With these three working structures I feel, as the Board Chair, that we have great community impact in this public higher education institution and allow for true and meaningful engagement from each of the these volunteer groups.
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
In order to continuously improve teaching and learning, scholarship, research, innovation, public service and community engagement, USF Sarasota-Manatee strives to provide expanded access to a University education that benefits students at the local, national, and global levels.  USFSM strives to enhance success of student outcomes, faculty productivity, and a positive impact on the community.

Gifts designated to the unrestricted annual funds, within any of USFSM’s four colleges, provide the greatest flexibility for each academic unit. Such gifts can be used for general operating purposes or for projects unique to a college. Annual, unrestricted gifts serve as a resource for institutional research, service and teaching for the University.

Budget $40,000
Category Education, General/Other Educational Delivery
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Males Females US& International
Short Term Success

Unrestricted annual gifts are considered flexible funding and they benefit every student, professor, staff member and the community by meeting critical needs which are not funded through regular institutional channels.


Long Term Success

Successful Annual Fund development will be evidenced by increased opportunities for each college to support merit scholarships, faculty development, program enhancements, and emerging needs.

Program Success Monitoring


Continuously improving course offerings and opportunities for the communities and clients served by USFSM translates to the university aligning its business activities to the vision and strategy of the organization. Such alignment must be assessed and evaluated against three critical are:
  1. Teaching and Learning
  2. Scholarship, Research, and Innovation
  3. Public Service and Community Engagement
The data to be assessed for the alignment include:
  • Enrollment, Retention and Graduation Rates
  • Student Career Results
  • Engagement at local, regional, national and international levels
  • Degree Program Expansion
  • Increase in External Funding from both public and private sources in the form of philanthropic and research dollars
Program Success Examples

USF Sarasota-Manatee introduces the Pre-College Success Program, a free online course for high-school students and new USFSM applicants to navigate the complex college-entry process. The program consists of eight modules that cover everything from the application process, financial aid and scholarships to choosing a career and the right classes and is designed to help students and their parents navigate the complexities of applying to and attending college.

Center for Partnerships for Arts Integrated Teaching (PAInT) became a statewide Center at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee (USFSM). The Center offers training for pre-service teachers and professional development for practicing teachers to increase their capacity to deliver high-quality instruction that integrates the arts into classrooms. Partnering with other institutions, the Center conducts basic and applied research on policies and practices related to arts-integrated teaching, including publication in the peer-reviewed book series on arts integrated education.

The Culinary Innovation Lab at USF Sarasota-Manatee is a state-of-the-art teaching facility that serves as a culinary home for the USFSM College of Hospitality and Tourism Leadership. The lab provides a fully-equipped teaching center for students in the Hospitality Management program, as well as an inviting venue for signature USFSM events, both public and private.



USF Sarasota-Manatee is committed to provide the next generation of students the intellectual resources needed to compete in a fast-paced, evolving global society and the financial resources needed to achieve their educational goals.

For many USFSM students, finances can become the sole factor in determining if staying in college is even an option. Securing privately funded scholarships is among USFSM’s highest priorities. Unlike student loans, scholarship funds do not need to be repaid, thereby reducing the financial burden many students face after graduation. Thousands of donors have helped generations of USFSM students realize their dreams of earning a college degree.

Budget $50,000
Category Education, General/Other Student Financial Aid
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Females Males US& International
Short Term Success
With scholarship funding, USFSM students have the option of staying at home—thereby saving money—while they attend college. Increased funds for scholarship offerings means a larger class of entering freshmen and greater demand for more academic class offerings.
Long Term Success
Gifts of scholarship strengthen USFSM’s ability to recruit the highest caliber students--fulfilling both academic and financial qualifications. The University’s expansion to a four-year university accelerates the growth in student population, increases course and program offerings, and maximizes the campus's ability to serve more students in a convenient, regional, campus setting.
Program Success Monitoring
Program success for scholarship distribution can be measured by the number of students awarded scholarships over the previous year(s), the number and amount of new scholarship funds collected from public and private interests, and an increase in enrollments.  Additional data may be collected from surveys, interviews, and first-person narratives about scholarships and their impact on the academic careers of individuals.
Program Success Examples USFSM students have benefited greatly from the generosity of our donors.  Since 1998, USF Sarasota-Manatee has awarded more than $1.48 million dollars in scholarships to thousands of deserving students, including over $500,000 to students in the First Generation Program. 

Endowments support a broad base of initiatives at USFSM, and they can be established for scholarships, fellowships, chairs, research, professorships, lecture series, equipment, capital improvements and more. This type of giving preserves the donor’s original gift to the university in perpetuity, creating an enduring legacy throughout time. The principal gift remains intact while earnings from the donor’s investment are used to support the donor’s intent. Endowments can be created in the donor’s name, the name of the donor’s company, or in memory of someone.


Budget $100,000
Category Education, General/Other Educational Programs
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Females Males US& International
Short Term Success
Endowing programs will help USFSM attract high caliber faculty and create strategically designed programs that benefit our students, the university and the community as a whole.
Long Term Success
Endowments are an important part of USFSM’s goal of building and maintaining a world-class faculty. Such investments help attract and retain a diverse group of scholars who influence today’s important public policy and academic debates and establish USFSM as a leader in higher education. In turn, endowed chairs, professorships, fellowships highlight the important role that scholarship and teaching play at the University.
Program Success Monitoring
Success is measured by the number and size of the pool of endowments available to the university.
Program Success Examples USF Sarasota-Manatee currently holds more than $8,430,800 in endowed principal funds.  Endowment principal funds are never spent and provide earnings, in perpetuity, dedicated to scholarships, chairs, professorships, and operating expenses.
